"Hello,  My name is Bella. My foster mom calls me Beautiful Bella Boo. I am learning so much in my foster home. I used to live in what they call a puppy mill. It was disgusting, but I am beginning to forget a lot about that. M y foster mom says I am really a smart girl. I learned potty training almost over night - of course my foster sisters helped me figure that one out. I love supper, but have learned to wait patiently until I'm told it's time to eat. Going for walks is one of my favorite things in the whole world. I get to stop and look at things like people and houses and cars and whatever along the way. I am very curious about the wonderful world around me. I am still a bit timid with strangers, but I am overcoming that, too. Lately, I am learning to talk.  Just little soft growly talk, but my foster mom thinks it is very funny. It's fun to be a part of this family, but what I really would like is a forever home of my own. A fenced yard would be great as I love to just wander and explore or run and be silly. And a brother or sister would be great, too. Especially one who I could learn to play with (my foster sisters are older and not very playful). I am not very comfortable with kids yet, but if they are gentle and don't scare me I think I could learn to like them."  

Bella will need to go to a home with another dog to help her continue to learn how to be a real dog.
